HighQueueDropRate on 8** series

Ciscoworks is often reporting the event HighQueueDropRate on some of

my wireless routers (837, 877w, ...)

for example, today : InputPacketQueueDropPct 1.6998109 %

but it could be OutputPacketQueueDropPct.

basically, the value is set to 1% (default value)

I would like to know if somebody have an idea of why I've got this event (only on wireless interfaces), and how to decrease the number of droped packet (please not how to set the value at 2% on Ciscoworks :D ).

this isn't an alarm to be worried about, because this is normal for an access points. DFM treats the AP by default similar to a switch, as we all know a Wireless connection is very different than a physical connection, so if packets are getting lost on

a switch is something that DFM should report, but on an AP is something that happens everyday.
